Helping to prevent you from becoming a victim of crime.
There are a number of different plastic cycle storage options, we look at some of the ones to consider and avoid...well, two to consider and one to definitely avoid!
Stylish, secure and space saving is how this unit is described and we tend to agree. The unit has been independently tested, gaining Sold Secure Bronze status. It has a 3 point locking system, key operated door, meaning no padlocks are needed. The unit has quite a small footprint considering it can fit four adult bikes and it is delivered fully assembled. As the picture shows it can be placed on grass of a firmer surface. Doors come in black as standard, however other colour options can be chosen.
Pros: Made with security in mind. Comes fully assembled. Fits 4 adult bikes. Made from recycled / recyclable materials.
Cons: Mid price bracket.
Technical Information: Weight. 72kg. External Dimensions. W. 100cm D. 200cm H.135cm

This is a large capacity garden shed, with a roof structure that aids the storage area. The product is made from 'robust resin', but needs self-assembly. Padlocks are not provided, however the double doors are pad lockable. This unit hasn't been security tested, so should not be used in very high crime areas.
Pros: Large capacity.
Cons: Expensive. Need to purchase your own padlock

Keter Store it Out XL Plastic Garden Storage Shed
This shed is manufactured using a Polypropylene resin, the unit needs assembly, this should take 1 - 2 hours. No locks / locking mechanisms are supplied with the product and it will be quite easy for a thief to gain access to bikes stored inside. One other concern raised by users of this product concerns its dimensions - make sure your bike fits inside.
Pros: It will keep your bikes dry - if they fit inside!
Cons: No real security element included. Thief could gain access even with a lock added. Avoid unless you have no other option

There aren't a great deal of options when choosing plastic cycle storage. As you can see we think the Lockerpod+ is the better option if you have up to 4 adult bikes, want some security, but don't want to pay a huge amount.
